Housing Unlimited, Inc. (HUI), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization, was founded by members of The Alliance for the mentally Ill of Montgomery County (AMI), to provide affordable, permanent, supported independent housing for low-income persons with psychiatric disabilities. HUI is the only housing corporation in the Washington Metropolitan area devoted exclusively to the provision of the housing component of the supported independent housing model. This is part of an emerging movement to provide economical housing and increased options for supported independent living for adults coping with chronic mental illnesses. In HUIÃ¢Â Â s model, housing and mental health services are provided by separate entities to afford maximum autonomy and choice for persons with mental illness.
